UFC Donating All Profits from Vegas Strong T-Shirts | MMAWeekly.com


In the wake of the recent tragedy in Las Vegas, UFC has released special “Vegas Strong” t-shirts for sale. The shirts are produced in conjunction with Fanatics, but 100-percent of the profits will be donated to those affected by the Las Vegas shooting.

Las Vegas was rocked last Sunday, when a man holed up in a room on the 32nd floor of the Mandalay Bay and opened fire on a crowd of more than 22,000 at the Route 91 Music Festival across the street. 58 people lost their lives and approximately 500 more were injured. 

The UFC is based in Las Vegas and has responded swiftly to the tragedy.

Earlier in the week, UFC president Dana White announced that the company would donate at least $1 million to aid those affected by the shooting.

On Friday, the promotion announced the sale of the “Vegas Strong” shirts via its website. The shirts are available at the promotion’s online store and at all venue retail locations.

“In light of the tragic events that recently took place in Las Vegas, UFC will be selling VEGAS STRONG T-shirts through the end of October to raise money for families of the victims and those affected by the shooting,” read a statement.

“UFC and Fanatics do not profit from the sale of Vegas Strong products. Charitable contributions are donated to support the families of victims and those affected by the tragedy in Las Vegas. 100-percent of the profits from the sale of the Vegas Strong t-shirts will be donated.”
